Someone is killing the people who once attended high school together in a town called China Lake, best known for its "need-to-know" military base. As freelance journalist and daughter of a CIA spook Evan Delaney finds out, the truth is even scarier than she could have imagined. Narrator Tanya Eby Sirois carries the listener through the myriad twists of this thriller like the perfect guide. She portrays the sexually ambiguous killer with skill, heightening the mystery of whether the killer is man, woman, or both. She also succeeds in making a handicapped character realistic and heroic without being maudlin. In addition, Evan's partially paralyzed boyfriend, her annoying cousin, her peculiar mother, and her tough father make a fascinating set of characters out to expose a killer before he/she completes a murder spree.
